Bears are active in Grand Teton
Black and grizzly bears are roaming throughout the park--near roads, trails and in backcountry areas. Hikers and backcountry users are advised to travel in groups of three or more, make noise and carry bear spray. Visitors must stay 100 yards from bears. More »
The Grand Teton National Park Video Rivers are a series of high definition films projected from the floor of the Craig Thomas Discovery and Visitor Center. The Rivers symbolize a key feature of Grand Teton National Park, the Snake River, while providing unique perspectives on the park and its central themes. A nature soundtrack complements the scenes, while bird's eye views and other unique camera angles provide a shifting, uplifting view of the mountains and valley, as dynamic as the park itself.

Did You Know?
Did you know that Jenny and Leigh Lakes are named for the fur trapper “Beaver” Dick Leigh and his wife Jenny (not pictured)? Beaver Dick and Jenny assisted the Hayden party that explored the region in 1872. This couple impressed the explorers to the extent that they named the lakes in their honor.
